T-Rex is a Wimpy Dinosaur

Speaking of the mid-west, I’m enjoying NPR (gasp!) on the weekends. (Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor, whom I saw at the Vancouver airport two summers ago.) This American Life had a segment on dinosaurs,, and how the new theories reveal that T-Rex was a wimp, and it was all marketing that fueled the idea of it as a real predator. The segment ended with “I’m a Little Dinosaur”, by Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers. Woo hoo!
